Valerie Duttlinger grew up on a farrow-to-finish seedstock farm near Santa Claus, Indiana and attended Purdue University, where her focus was Animal Science.
Upon graduation, she returned to the family farm where she was part of the operation until June 2016 when she took her current position as Production Analyst with Swine Management Services in Fremont, Nebraska.
Valerie has traveled throughout the country and Asia working on farms with producers in many capacities from production training, employee management and data analysis.
Valerie and her husband Ben still reside near Santa Claus with their two sons, Blake and Jace.
Valerie enjoys working with producers and their teams to continue to improve performance and efficiency by doing what is right for the pigs and the people in the industry.
